Jesus plus disciple in Romanian wardrobeA Romanian family is bracing itself for a veritable crusade of pilgrims after discovering the likeness of Jesus flanked by Saints Peter and Paul in a humble wardrobe, Ananova reports.

Valeriu Junie, 66, says he spotted the holy trio about a year ago while watching TV. The epiphanised Junie recalled: "I turned on the light and saw the image of Jesus in the middle and those of St Peter and St Paul on the sides. I didn't say a word to anyone for a few weeks but then the images started to become clearer everyday. I decided to call the priests and since then lots of people come to my house to see the miracle."

Local priest Vasile Nuhaiu confirmed: "I was shocked by what I saw there. There were three shadows on that wardrobe with the face of Jesus Christ in the centre. It is a miracle when Saints reveal themselves to us mortals and I crossed myself and started to pray. I told the two old people they should fast and pray to those holy images."

The report notes that the wardrobe is made of walnut and was a dowry prezzie from Junie's inlaws. Those of a woodworking bent will probably realise that the wardrobe is actually simply adorned with book-matched walnut veneer, leading us to believe that this is not in fact Jesus plus disciples, but rather the Son of Man sliced into six thin slivers and then glued to a (pine or oak?) carcass by a careless Romanian wardrobe maker. ®
